Manchester City face Tottenham in a top of the table clash on Sunday afternoon. The English Premier League’s top two sides will go at it at White Hart Lane with Spurs having the chance to close the gap at the top. A City win will put them in the Premier League’s driver’s seat with seven match days gone.

According to Blue Moon, Kevin De Bruyne will miss the fixture with a groin injury. His loss is a massive blow to the side as he currently leads the Premier League with four assists.

Spurs have their own injury worries and will be without top striker Harry Kane, who will miss out due to an ankle injury. Meanwhile, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele will face fitness tests in the build up to the match.

Everton take on Crystal Palace in a match that pits the soaring Eagles against a Toffees side that tasted defeat for the first time a week ago. Palace’s Loic Remy and Scott Dann will miss the match due to injury.

Leighton Baines will miss out for Everton as Ronald Koeman’s team look to get back to winning ways.

Liverpool travel to Swansea as Jurgen Klopp hope to continue their excellent form. Liverpool have won their last three while Swansea are winless in five straight. Liverpool have beaten Swansea in their last five of six meetings.

The Reds should have Divock Origi and Dejan Lovren back from injury.

Chelsea travel to Hull after back-to-back losses in the Premier League. Hull have given up nine goals in their last two, which should give Chelsea fans hope of returning to form.

However, Chelsea will need an improved performance from centre-back Gary Cahill if they are to be solid at the back. That is, if Cahill makes the starting XI.
Manchester United got back to winning ways a week ago, beating Leicester 4-1.

This week the Red Devils host Stoke City, a team that has given up the second most goals in the Premier League.

If Jose Mourinho’s team can get into high gear like they did last week, they should have no trouble casting Stoke aside. United’s Luke Shaw is still a doubt due to illness, meanwhile Anthony Martial could return to the side.

Leicester and Southampton will clash at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, as the Saints look to win their third in a row. Leicester were humiliated last week against Manchester United, though the Foxes did win midweek againt Porto in the Champions League.

Arsenal will take on Burnley at Turf Moor as the Gunners continued their high of beating Chelsea last week by winning in the Champions League against FC Basel. Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are in fantastic form, but Burnley are coming off of a 2-0 win against Watford a week ago.

Expect Burnley to pack 11 men into the box like they did against Liverpool earlier this season. Arsenal could get Olivier Giroud back to full health for the match as the Gunners look to make it five wins in a row.
